Why do tree care professionals need business insurance?

Tree maintenance is dangerous work, and as a result, tree service companies deal with big liability. A falling tree branch could damage power lines or injure a homeowner, which could lead to a lawsuit. Tree service insurance helps your small business shoulder the legal and financial burden of injuries, property damage, equipment theft, and auto accidents.
